Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren touted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal Thursday; saying the progressive proposal would help prevent future “polar vortexes” from occurring.

“Our children & grandchildren should grow up in a world where they can breathe the air & drink the water – and go outside without risking their lives in extreme temperatures. It’s time to protect our planet & pass a Green New Deal. #PolarVortex2019 https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/31/us/weather-polar-vortex.html …” she tweeted.

Cortez and other left-wing legislators are poised to introduce the Green New Deal in the coming days; calling for a complete transition to renewable energy in 10 years, a universal jobs program, and Medicare for All.
